That's possible...

Yeah, that's true.  But it should, in an case, not keep spinning (much)
longer than the timeout, whether there's any output or not...

What I'm seeing happening if I instrument the loop in the Lisp part with:

        (while (and (memq (process-status stream) '(open run))
                    (not (re-search-forward end-of-command nil t)))
          (push (buffer-string) my-output-list)
          (accept-process-output stream 0.05)
          (goto-char start))

is that when Emacs hangs, and I `C-g' after half a minute, I will get 1
"" (empty string) entry in that list, so the timeout isn't heeded.
But -- in the buffer where this is happening, the data this is waiting
for is present, so Emacs got the response and put it into the buffer --
but then just kept on spinning in wait_reading_process_output,
apparently.

I'll add some instrumentation to that function now and try to figure out
why it's not heeding the timeout.  It's so annoying that I haven't been
able to make a simple test case to reproduce the error, though, because
the hang only happens once every few hours...
